What is the Expected Future Outlook for the Overall Global Polyurethane Market Across the globe?

The Global Polyurethane market was valued at USD ~billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach USD ~billion by the end of 2028F, witnessing a CAGR of ~% during the forecast period 2022-2028F. The realistic growth scenario represents the most likely scenario as per current market conditions. This scenario assumes that there will be no overall impact on the market due to any potential COVID-19 waves in the future.

The Global Polyurethane market is driven by rising building insulation demand brought on by environmental concerns. However, the market is also constantly being influenced by rapid development in technology, product innovation, and diversification in some countries. With the increasing investments and emergence of new products, the Global Polyurethane market is changing rapidly. For instance, to fulfil the growing demand for Polyurethane Dispersions (PUDs) and elastomers, materials firm Covestro started construction on two new factories in Shanghai in July 2022. These new facilities will be situated within the Covestro Integrated Site Shanghai and represent a combined investment of mid-double-digit million euros. The largest Covestro production location now has a larger footprint, thanks to new plants.

Furthermore, In July 20, 2022, Huntsman Corporation stated that a new methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) splitter at its Geismar plant in Louisiana has started operating in a commercial capacity. Huntsman can now generate more high-value, distinctive grades from the crude MDI produced at the facility thanks to the USD$180 million splitter, enabling expansion in important client applications.

In January 2020, BASF announced a single-digit million-euro investment in the capacity expansion of water-based polyurethane dispersions at its Castellbisbal location in Spain. BASF has also been investing in the development of the polyurethane dispersion business in Europe. BASF's production capacity will rise by 30% as a result of the expansion.

The Global Polyurethane Market is forecasted to continue at a steady growth rate that it has been witnessing since 2017, primarily driven by the unique physical characteristics of polyurethane, including versatility, strength-to-weight ratio, insulating capabilities, durability, and adaptability. Though the market is highly competitive with over 500 participants, few global players control the dominant share and regional players also hold a significant share.
